Lake Tahoe is a beautiful destination and home base for endless activities. It's accessible to Californians by car as well as visitors from across North America by plane. We're getting married at one of our favorite ski resorts, Northstar, near the North Shore of the lake.
Reno-Tahoe Airport (RNO) is a 45 minute drive from Northstar and the closest airport with commercial service. You can take a shuttle service, taxi, or Uber/Lyft (around $65). The next closest airport is Sacramento (SMF), at around 2 hrs away. San Francisco (SFO), Oakland (OAK), and San Jose (SJC) are all within a 4-hour drive. We're ensuring that once you arrive, you won't need a car to attend all wedding events. If you'd like to explore the wider Tahoe area, we recommend renting a car.
From San Francisco or Sacramento, take I-80 East to Truckee. Exit onto CA 267 and head south toward Lake Tahoe. Take a right when you see signs for Northstar, and head to the Village (or wherever you're staying). Traffic to and from San Francisco can be variable, so leave yourself an extra hour or two if you’re driving during peak commute or Tahoe weekender hours.
